Why Are 18-Wheeler Accidents So Deadly
It is a matter of simple physics—the more a vehicle weighs and the faster it is accelerating, the greater the force it produces (force = mass x acceleration) and the damages it causes. An average 18-wheeler weighs approximately 35,000 lbs. Fully loaded it can legally haul loads up to 80,000 lbs., i.e., 40 tons. Also, the overall average length of a large 18-wheeler is 70-80 ft. and the time to stop an 18-wheeler is 40% greater than that of a car.

Don't speak law enforcement without an attorney
The government must follow certain procedures and rules when it accuses a citizen of a crime. If the government, through its law enforcement agents, has begun a criminal investigation against you, it is time to retain an aggressive lawyer to defend your inalienable, constitutional rights. As Americans , our constitution endows us with certain inalienable rights. You need a knowledgeable attorney on your side to protect those rights and your freedom.
We make the government follow the rules
Criminal defense attorneys sometimes get a bad rep for defending ‘bad’ guys. That’s a false perception. What we do is make sure the government follow the rules. We make sure your rights are protected. We make them follow the Constitution. For example, did its agents inform you of your right to remain silent?
If the government has accused your child of a crime, he or she deserves an aggressive and knowledge attorney on their side. In Texas, a juvenile is defined as a person who is at least 10 years old but not yet seventeen years old at the time he or she is accused of committing a crime or delinquent conduct. Juveniles can be charged with offenses of skipping school all the way up to serious felonies requiring life in prison.
Texas Juvenile System
The Texas juvenile justice system requires the attorney to have a specialized knowledge of both adult criminal law and family law. An attorney who solely practices adult criminal law cannot apply the same principles that he or she uses to defend their adult clients. Instead, the attorney must be empathetic, extremely knowledgeable in civil and criminal law, and have a passion for helping children and their families.

Before the messiness starts, retain our attorneys to protect your rights.
We help our clients achieve their conservatorship goals. Here’s some information about the conservatorship process. Texas courts divide child custody issues into two categories: conservatorship (custody) and possession and access (visitation). Child custody is known as conservatorship, which describes the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent, such as who decides for the child issues regarding schooling, medical decisions, and psychiatric decisions, among many other things. A child’s custodian or parent is known as a “conservator,” and a Texas family law court will decide conservatorship, unless there is a written agreement.
Why hire a Civil Rights lawyer?
Our Constitution protects people from discrimination on the basis of race, gender, religion or other characteristics. However, far too often, individuals civil rights are violated under the law. When these violations occur taking swift and aggressive legal action is crucial. A skilled attorney can help victims of civil right violations get justice and the compensation they deserve.
Police brutality and vigilante justice are other specific examples of America’s lingering and rampart struggle with racism. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arberry, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Jordan Edwards, Freddy Gray, Botham Jean, and many more are racial discrimination. We seek justice for any person of color who suffers harm at the hands of vigilantes and police officers who act outside their authority under our Constitution.
